Deacons Ministry 2017

Acts 6:2-4
2 Then the twelve called the multitude of the disciples unto them, and said, It is not reason that we should leave the word of God, and serve tables.
3 Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business.
4 But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.


(Also the deacons help to keep the spirit of the church in the bonds of peace).

What is a deacon? Someone whose principle task is to provide benevolent support for members of the congregation in their times of special need? Someone who plays a "leading" role in attending all worship, study, and fellowship events in the life of the congregation? Someone who by word and deed models and demonstrates the fruits of the spirit as listed in Galatians 5:22-23 as that person interacts with the pastor and with members of the congregation?


1 Timothy 3:8-13, which is the other biblical passage that offers an in-depth look at the role and responsibilities of the deacon. When considered alongside Acts 6:1-5, this passage establishes the deacon as one of only two offices in the church with roots in the Bible (the first office being the bishop/pastor). These two passages not only describe the qualities and characteristics desirable for anyone who is named to become a deacon, but they also describe a working relationship that can safeguard against the influence of corporate models or cultural traditions serving as the basis for deciding on the duties of the deacon.


This lack of clarity about the appropriate roles and responsibilities of deacons can result in tensions and conflicts that can have a negative effect on the congregation in which they are serving. When deacons see themselves as being there to serve the spiritual and benevolent needs of the congregation, and when they see themselves as fulfilling that role in partnership with the pastor of that congregation there should be no problem.
